Call me a cynic but this just reeks off rank pr-election pandering. Given the US likely already has exponentially more cases than its publicly acknowledged (several thousand seems to be the guess) banning travelers from Europe would seem to be the equivalent of putting a sticking plaster on a severed limb, as it were.

Yeah it's pretty weak. The reason they lost the handle is two fold.

1) they weren't able to get testing organised and since most people don't get very ill, it's spread widely. An NBA player just tested positive, and was totally fine..about to play in a game that had to be postponed.

2) they should have stopped flights far far earlier from everywhere, now it's pointless. Blaming Europe doesn't particularly make much sense either, as most got dragged in on the west coast and broke containment. Obviously New York was probably Europe.

Really its just the not testing bit.. That really did the US in.

Extra credit: his whole speech was looking for someone to blame... The intro line was chinese virus, the exit line was travel ban on Europe lol. He's overwhelmed, and believes the democrats are after him lol.

Banning travel from Schengen but not the China, Japan, Korea or the UK is more about his personal vendetta than limiting the spread of coronavirus.

To think that only last week the Republican narrative was coronavirus is being blown out of all proportion by the mainstream media to damage Trump and the the stock market.

He already banned flights from China ages ago.
Not banning flights from the UK makes little sense.
Banning flights fro Europe is a decision of risk reward. I can see why he would wnat to.
